Re: Feline Follies

^There's something about that, of course, but she even did it in a plastic basket, I'd never used as a laundry basket -one which had only a recently purchased fleece-plaid in it!

A friend, whose cat had just had kittens told me the kittens had pushed the top off a basket she uses to store her pantihose in just to find a comfy place though So, yeah, I know about the 'smell-factor'.

I suspect that for all of the garbage people say about cats not caring, they do find it comforting to have something with their owners' scent on it...like a child cuddling a doll because it reminds them of their parents' care.

^Reminds me of the day I took a kitten home with me: her 'human mum' put a pair of her pantihose into the carrier with the cat

Re: Feline Follies

Two years ago, when I adopted Marigold, she was a "don't touch me!" cat. The only place she allowed to be petted was the top of her head.

Marigold now:

Re: Feline Follies

More adventures of Diaper Kitty, aka Banshee! (Or as we sometimes call her when she needs to be changed, "Smelly Cat"! ) She is such a sweet little cat and is an absolute lap lizard.

Helping my daughter with her homework:


Taking a nap with my youngest, who conked out trying to watch Batman Begins:


Helping Phantom, Sneezy, and Zoe (the dog) finish off dinner. Our other cat, Squeeky, doesn't come out much when the kids are up.


And finally, just one by herself:

I wish my cat would cuddle!
We're getting there though, she's definitely getting more cuddlesome (?) as time passes, why just the other day she let me cuddle her for a whole minute
Plus: she -apparently- likes sharing a bed with me -even if I have to push her off my legs several times every night

Especially if it's freshly laundered. Whenever I am getting ready to iron assorted laundry, the cat that is closest to the pile always climbs on top of it. I guess they really are cleanliness-loving animals.

This is Matilda, last Sunday.









For me the weekend is pet photoshoot time.

Those are fantastic shots! And a very lovely kitty, as well.

BJ, I'm so happy that you have solved the problem of keeping a diaper on a cat. I've made note of your idea...leash and collar attached to the diaper, ingenious!

Yeah, that was a very quick development on our part! There's a cut section of a leash pinned on both the front and back of the diaper. We also have to put a strip of medical tape around the waist so that the diaper's fastening tabs don't pull off, and also to keep her from pulling her legs out of the holes.

Uh-oh...there's a dog thread now! We can't let this one drift into ignominy in the back pages of the BBS, with THAT kind of competition!
